I haven't checked drums but Guitar has a lefty flip so I would assume drums do, too.

Guess that's a problem when you have an asymmetrical drum setup......

whats the difference? you need both hands on the drums. you have to hit both sides...... so........ i doesn't matter. you don't really need it. I know plenty of left handed people that play the drums on rock band with no problem.

Anyone who thinks there's "no difference" between playing drums left handed or right handed, is obviously NOT left handed. There's a big difference.

Yes, of course you use both hands to drum. But left handed people generally have the kick pedal on the left, to use with their left foot, and then the snare and hi-hat (which is what is used the most) on the right.

In Rock Band and Guitar Hero, there is an option for lefty flip on drums, so notes that are normally played on yellow and red (which represent the snare and hi-hat, and are what is played the most) are played on blue and green.

This option is available because it's very awkward to have the kick pedal under your left foot and have to lean over to play the snare and hi-hat on the same side. Try it yourself, you'll see what I mean.

Your left handed friends who play rock band drums are probably using lefty flip and you don't realize it because the colors don't flip on the screen like with the guitar; the notation is just reversed.

This game was an obvious rush job, there are many basic features that could have been included with a little more effort on Konami's part.
